... and the winner is:

JUMP! 106.9 CROWNS JESSE REYNOLDS WINNER OF GREATEST GIG ON EARTH


Jesse Reynolds joins JUMP! Mornings with Tony Stark starting June 2


(Friday, May 8, 2015 - Ottawa, Canada) Starting June 2, Ottawa listeners
will be waking up to JUMP! Mornings with Tony Stark & Jesse Reynolds, as
the hit radio station has crowned the winner of its Greatest Gig On Earth
co-host talent search.

The search began in early March, with over 160 hopefuls looking to land
the coveted spot alongside current morning show host Tony Stark. The list
was whittled down to 30, 10, five, and three, respectively, before
Reynolds was announced as the winner this morning.

After submitting an online video, surviving a series of grueling social
media tasks, co-hosting three morning shows and performing a live lip-sync
battle, Reynolds, an Ottawa-based comedian and actor, was the last person
standing.

“To say that we’re excited to introduce Jesse to JUMP! listeners across
the region would be the understatement of the century,” said Stark. “If
you’ve followed Jesse’s journey throughout this process, you know that he
is a fresh, uber-entertaining voice unlike any other on local radio.”

Dubbed “Ottawa’s Acid Tongue” by Capital Xtra Magazine, Reynolds is
definitely not afraid to share his two cents and, in his words, “tell it
like it is.”

“I’m extremely pumped to join the team at Ottawa’s coolest new radio
station,” said Reynolds. “I not only encourage, but I challenge everyone
to listen to JUMP! Mornings with Tony Stark & Jesse Reynolds. We’ll bring
more caffeine to your morning than 12 cups of coffee.”

JUMP! 106.9’s Greatest Gig On Earth has taken the city – and social media
– by storm, generating over 20 million impressions and consistently
trending region-wide.

“This has been a wild ride, and we couldn’t be more excited,” said Mark
Dickie, General Manager, Corus Radio Ottawa. “On the air, on the street,
and on social media, each participant has made their mark, and we cannot
wait to introduce JUMP! Mornings with Tony Stark & Jesse Reynolds.”

JUMP! Mornings with Tony Stark & Jesse Reynolds will hit the air Tuesday,
June 2, and will be heard every weekday from 5:30 a.m. to 10 a.m.
